While I was standing there loving my new room, I realized that my photos would not work in this new room. That is, the mats around the photos wouldn't work. They are baby blue, which just doesn't gehaw with my room (y'all say gehaw, right? it means it doesn't work well with something else). This is the picture before.
This is one of my very favorite pictures. This is my daughter C dressed and ready for my wedding when she was three (yes, I was previously married). My new sister-in-law got her this gorgeous silver tea service to play with while the rest of us were getting in our attire. It's been hanging in my dining room since my MIL and SIL hung it there years ago(I told ya I didn't hang stuff). This is a pottery barn frame my MIL bought me and I just LOVE it, but the mat, as I said, didn't gehaw.
I got out my beloved Michael Miller Dandy Damask which I have used on previous projects (such as this). I decided to wrap my fabric around the back of the mat and mount the picture on top. I think it turned out pretty cute. What do you think?
Sorry about the glare. The picture is actually hanging straight, I just apparently can't hold the camera straight.
